Charlie Greengould Meets Himself Auditions

Charlie Greengould Meets Himself is an original musical penned by Wesleyan’s very own Nat Leich and Max Nussenbaum (both ’12) and presented by Second Stage.

Max says:

If you like singing, acting, and shows about people who meet their doppelgängers from a parallel universe, then you should definitely try out. Auditions only take fifteen minutes, and you just have to prepare 16 bars of a song and a short monologue. If music is more your thing, we’re also looking for people to play in the band. You can find audition signups, band info, and more at our web site. Thanks!

Date: Saturday, Sept. 18th and Sunday, Sept. 19th
Time: 1-5 pm both days
Place: Jones Rm (CFA Theater and Dance Studios)
